Friday Funhouse

Video of the Week

Thought this was bizarre enough for a look...apparently from something called "Inside Outdoors." I confess to never having heard of it before, but it I did like the idea of the "mystical jerk bait."

Things I Would Buy If I Could Afford Them

As a proviso, we will spending a lot of time next week dissecting the upcoming Lang's Auction, so this Friday Funhouse will not deal with any of the recent Lang's listings on eBay. Well, except this one. Only two words come to mind: "Holy" and "Crap."

As a dedicated collector of snelled hook packets, I have been a bit amazed at how the prices on these have risen in the past months (recently a group went for nearly $500). These Weber Lifelike Snells are already well beyond what they sold for last year.

The Hurd Super Caster has its adherents, and this is a nice example of this 1950s combo.

There are very few Pflueger reels as prettyas this early Akron.

For the lucky lady in your life, comes this lucky lady dealer card. From the looks of things, you'll have to provide the bra.

The Heddon of the Week is this nice Spin Diver.

How about this sweet Pepper Musky Minnow? What a nice and rare bait.

Barber pole baits are always popular; this Clinton Wilt lure is no exception.

A 19333 Heddon Catalog seems to have attracted a lot of interest.

Everyone loves a Winchester...especially when they appear to be in nice condition, like this one here. Maybe a bit of an overvarnish?

I'm off to ogle some more Lang's items.
